    FLAC Decompression software?

    Quote: Originally Posted by skoog5600 Hybrys thanks for your explanation. I understand that FLAC is directly from the source. But i also heard that there is a little compression going on and that you can change that. As Krmathis so kindly pointed out this is done by using the -0 flag...

    College Student Food

    That is a lot of money per week for groceries. When I was living in my old apt, I was spending $75 every two weeks for food and I was eating really well. Learn how to actually use all kinds of vegetables because they are cheap and so tasty. All the weird ones, brussel sprouts, radishes, bok...

    Grado Wood Maintenance

    Unless they are coated with anything, you should treat them like a nice piece of furniture, or an antique instrument. I use lemon oil on all of the furniture I have made/bought and I use it on my violin as well.

    Pink Floyd Dark Side of The Moon...FOR NES!!!!

    Quote: Originally Posted by LFF Just wish there was a FLAC version. Hah I thought the same thing, although I guess wanting FLAC of 8-bit music is a little much. This has to be one of the greatest covers I have ever heard. It is so close to the original, yet not.

    Will you/Do you miss High School?

    No way I would ever go back to high school. It was fun but bottom line was I was living in my parents house making $6 an hour. Now I am living in my own place, and I make good money, and I can do whatever I want. Lots of friends in the first few years of college would whine about how great high...

    Updated M^3 (MMM) (Mcubed) BOM

    Hi all, going through the M^3 BOM to setup building my own, so I figured I would post my updated version. I couldn't find the M^3 thread, and I think AMB says it was lost in a great head-fi disaster. It has all of the updated pricing from Mouser, and also all the parts if you wanted Digikey. I...

    Re-sting Guitar help!

    I love, love, love the Elixer Nanowebs. I don't play as often as I used to, and so I can put these on and in about 6 months, seriously, they sound just as good. They stay clean and don't oxidize like most other ones do. I swear by them on all my guitars. If you want to go with more...

    M^3 (Mcubed) Variable Gain

    I saw that the M^3 can have a variable gain with another Alps pot where the bass boost pot goes, and it sounds like an awesome idea. I did see though that the C1 values change depending on your gain, so what caps should be put in with a variable gain that will go from 2 - 11? (Btw, this may...

    Are We All Parasites? who Need To Get A Life?!!!!!

    This is probably one of the few forums I know of where the people actually do know what they are talking about. When a good portion of the base is EE or from at least some sort of engineering/science based field the odds are pretty good most will know what they are talking about, especially in...

    Yeasayer - Odd Blood

    I love this album, but it is a stark contrast to their first effort. Unlike "Contra", that takes Vampire Weekends best styles and makes them better, this one is waaay different. It does take a little but to let it grow on you.
